The present scenario that Covid 19 has caused is probably the most severe one that many of us would have experienced for the first time in a lifetime. As every industry has been impacted by the pandemic, the outcomes have been on different scales where layoffs and reduced pay are the most unfortunate ones. It is, therefore, the responsibility of an employer to stand with the employees at the time of distress and this is exactly what NewAgeSys believes in doing. We are coping up with the situation as a family and helping each other while gaining the mental strength to let this bad phase pass. Mentioned below are a few aspects that the company keeps track of to help the employees working in NewAgeSys to adjust with the new normal.
Help them manage work and family
An employee who dedicatedly works eight hours a day is pretty much exhausted when he /she reaches home. However, the feeling of being at one’s home is quite refreshing. With work from home being the norm for the past one year, taking into consideration the need of following social distancing, the difference between working from office and relaxing at home has blurred. It is an additional stress to work from home while the family is around. We at NewAgeSys, completely understand the situation and have eased certain work guidelines for our employees so that they can comfortably work from home as well as spend quality time with their family as well. These changes mostly focus on the work timing wherein we persuade our employees to strictly abide by it so that neither work nor their personal life is at stake.
Help them manage their finances
Managing the finances is one of the major issues that employees have been facing ever since the pandemic struck. Layoffs and salary cuts have added to the misery. As any responsible employer would do, the company too has helped those working at NewAgeSys in this regard as well. Timely recommendations by the company for its employees with regards to loans or availing advance salary is proving to be helpful for those who are facing a financial pinch.
Acknowledge the employees
No matter where they are working from, the company understands that every person working at NewAgeSys is dedicated towards its development and thus needs to be acknowledged for the commendable job he/she is doing while working from home and managing work and family at the same time.
Motivating the employees
Innovation knows no boundaries and as a company that supports innovations, NewAgeSys takes special care that the working of the company is not hampered at any cost. By doing this, the employees are kept motivated to come up with new and innovative changes that are essential for the company to grow, especially in this competitive scenario. Being motivated to work keeps the employees active and relives them of the unnecessary mental stress.
These steps have been tried and proved to be successful among the employees of NewAgeSys. However, a company needs to constantly work on building the relationship with the employees, especially during such times when people are working from different locations and are rarely meeting in person. Taking their feedback and involving them to improve has also worked in our favor.
